Alexforbes and the impact of chess
Chess is more than just a game; it’s a game-changer for learners. In the world of chess, every move matters. It’s not just about winning or losing; it’s about developing your brainpower, learning strategy, staying focused, and being patient.
Chess breaks down barriers and brings people together to grow intellectually and build friendships. In South Africa, we know there’s incredible talent waiting to be discovered. That’s why we created Alexforbes Battle Boards – a tournament that seeks out and celebrates these champions.
We believe in a culture where chess isn’t just a game; it’s a key to unlocking personal and academic excellence, no matter where you come from. By embracing chess, we’re making every move count to create new opportunities for our learners.
